    I used to haul about 35 square bales with mine when we had horses. My dad had a homemade stock rack on his 1/2 ton and hauled hogs to the sale barn with it.

    Test drove a Fusion and hated it. I bought a Mazda 3 instead. I can get well over 40mpg summer driving. I've averaged 37.5 mpg over the 1 1/2 years I've owned it. It's a manual transmission that is very hard to find.

    how many GPM is needed

    When I was shopping for a post hole digger years ago I checked out hydraulic diggers. My 37 hp Kubota is rated at 7.8 gpm. Diggers I looked at required 12 to 20. Hydraulic snow blowers seem to have similar requirements.

    Something I don't understand about applications of below 40hp tractors

    An ex in-law had a 47 Farmall Cub rated at about 11 hp. I used it to cut heavy pasture with a belly mounted 4' Mott hammer knife. It also had a 4' belly mounted blade I used for snow, frame mounted cultivator, sickle bar mower, and a 12" plow.

    He is pretty complimentary of Farley and says Ford is the least likely to go bust from the EV changeover. He really doesn't like GM's Barra and I agree %100 on both counts. That's why I'm betting on Ford. IMO they are way undervalued.

    We've owned and checked mileage on our Honda, Mazda, and Ford. All have been very accurate within 1 or 2% plus or minus. This is assuming the odometer is correct.

    Cyber Truck? LOL, Anybody that didn't realize towing a trailer would cut range in 1/2 or more isn't paying attention. Towing a trailer with an ICE truck can cut mileage in 1/2 also. They just start out with a bigger range. Side Note: I got 57 mpg on a 38 mile trip home from work last night with...

    My money is literally on Ford. They just raised their dividend to .15 or about 4% annual and the stock price is rising. Their sales crushed GM last quarter.

    I'm doing the math, my math isn't very good but did you start this website when you were 15? You're 39 now, you "joined" in 1998, 24 years ago. I assume you started it, maybe you purchased it. I don't really know the history before about 2002. Sorry for off topic post.

    I just tried to place an order with MSC Industrial supply for Vactra #2 way lube that I've been using for over 40 years. For the first time in those 40 years it's on backorder. They say they have outstanding orders for over 2000 individual gallons. It's available elsewhere but for a premium...

    The chart below was published by the CBO in 2012. So I guess we can agree that if oil/gas/diesel prices drop it's not because of government subsidies? As you say, "big-oil has to make it on their own".

    "Everything will eventually settle, but nothing, nothing, will ever come back to the same prices." Oil is down to 93$ If a recession happens, prices will drop. I think we'll see a national average gas price around $3.00 before summer 2023.

    Chase vehicles had to fuel when EV still had 81%? So the chase vehicles had a 150 mile range or didn't fill up when they started the trip. Other than that I liked the video and would consider an EV with 400 mile range. I wouldn't depend on an EV as my only transportation until charging times...

    When I first moved to where we live now in East Central Illinois there were no turkeys. I'm not sure who reintroduced them, state, county, Pheasants Forever, or a combination of the three, but they are everywhere now. It's not unusual to see 30 or more turkeys together in an open field.

    Steer on the loose.

    Yesterday my wife was on her way home from work at 7am when a steer came charging across the field toward her SUV about 1/2 mile from our house.

    Yea, I'm not worried about it in the least. He was on my property and deer are as thick as rabbits here. I'm pretty sure there was no chasing involved, it was probably 1 or 2 days old.

    Our shepherd got one a couple months ago. He rarely gets a rabbit or squirrel but does occasionally. He gets a lot of moles, but his proudest moment was when he got a fawn about 3 weeks ago. It took 3 days for him and his "sister" to eat that fawn. OP, looks like you have several good...

    I never understood why people that think the oil companies are ripping them off don't just turn around and buy stock in the companies they think are doing it. Just about anyone can open a trading account and trades are very cheap. Chevron has doubled since Nov. 2020.
